Fans of Subway’s banana peppers look for ways to replicate the delicious, tangy flavor at home. While we can't share our exact recipe, here's the general process for making them in your own kitchen.

1. Boil pickling jars, rims, and lids in hot water for about 5 minutes.

2. Slice several banana peppers and put them in the clean jars.

3. Make a brine by mixing white vinegar, water, salt, and sugar and bringing it to a boil. Pour the brine into the jars. Add crisper granules (available at most grocery stores) to help prevent the peppers from getting soggy.

4. Cover the jars with the rims and lids, and place in a hot water bath to boil for at least 10 minutes. (You'll hear the lids pop when they seal.)

5. Cool the jars, store them for at least a week, and enjoy!

Or, you could just stop by your local Subway restaurant and load up your favorite sub or salad with pickled banana peppers.
